Newbie from South Central Alaska- Tartan 27

Hi all,
This website has been a huge help in making my recent purchase of Tartan 27 hull #459. She is a fixer-upper, but will be a part-time liveaboard while I fix it up and convert to Electric Aux Drive.
I work as a Wiper/Oiler on the Alaska State Ferrys in Prince William Sound and Southwest Alaska.

Well, The seller had a new 2gm in it. I couldn't swing what he wanted with new engine so I bought it sans' engine.

Thought about a outboard well, but don't want to cut up the boat. I will only be sailing around local out of harbors, so I only enough power to get in/out. No long cruising for a while. Cold isn't really to much problem, if charged and left to trickle, batteries stay warm enough. Learned that at home, we are off grid.

besides, always wanted to convert something to electric Only fuel I'll burn on the boat is for the stove.

Welcom AKBarratt.
I like your choice of boat!
We have a T 27 Owners group on Yahoo if you are interested: T27Owners : Tartan 27 Owners Yahoo Group
I bet you have some interesting currents up there. There is another T27 owner up in the Bay of Fundy with similar current strengths.
I also bet it is beautiful up there.

I have options, as I work on the ships that service our community, but Having our own seaworthy boat is a big deal. Now to learn to Sail her.
